THE KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE CALL IS CLOSED
HSC R&D Division recognises that research findings should be translated into health or social care benefits as quickly and efficiently as possible.
In response, HSC R&D Division offers funding under a Knowledge Exchange Scheme with the aim that this will improve the impact and reach of research. The funding should be used to enable effective two-way exchange among researchers who have generated new knowledge, and research users who require an evidence base.
It is intended that the knowledge exchange will deliver practice, policy, social and/or economic benefit in an area relevant to health or social care. It is expected that applications will come from multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral teams who can demonstrate credible arrangements for collaboration.
The maximum award available is £100,000 and the maximum duration is 18 months.
The 2015 guidance, application form and FAQs are available to download
Potential applicants can discuss their application with Dr Clive Wolsley, HSC R&D Division.
